The mission of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, a nonprofit public charity, is to serve the charitable needs of its donors and the Oklahoma City area through the development and administration of endowment and other charitable funds with the goal of preserving capital and enhancing value.
 
The mission will be fulfilled by pursuit of these goals:

  • Encourage donors to create funds that will benefit the community both now and in the future. Advocate for the development of endowment funds and provide appropriate means by which permanent endowment funds can be built and wisely managed to provide long-term support.
  • Develop restricted and unrestricted community endowments which shall be used to develop, facilitate, coordinate and enhance services that meet the changing needs of the community.
Background Oilman and philanthropist John E. Kirkpatrick and eight fellow business leaders founded the Oklahoma City Community Foundation in 1969 as a place where donors could create easily create charitable endowments for the benefit of the community.

The group was spurred into action by the passage of the National Tax Reform Act of 1969 that imposed new restrictions on private foundations. As a result, the considerable tax advantages of contributing to a public community foundation made sense. Endowment funds created by donors could provide long-term support for charities, scholarships and a variety of community needs as well as a maximum tax benefit to the donor.

Designed to meet the test of time, the Oklahoma City Community Foundation was modeled after the Cleveland Foundation, one of the oldest and largest community foundations in the country. From its beginning, the Oklahoma City Community Foundation has operated within a system of checks and balances that ensures accountability and good stewardship. Its structure allows the organization to adapt to the changing needs of the community and to ensure the donor’s intent is preserved.

The first year of operations ended with net worth of $45,299 from one gift. As of June 30, 2011, the Oklahoma City Community Foundation manages more than 1,000 endowment funds with assets in excess of $620 million.
Impact Our Vision Statement:
The Oklahoma City Community Foundation values integrity, stewardship and collaboration. We strive to be enlightened leaders with a long-term perspective of community issues and opportunities, and we encourage and assist donors' philanthropy for the benefit of the community.
CEO/Executive Director Statement
Several years ago, the Trustees revised our Vision Statement and I feel it truly summarizes where this organization is now and where we want to be in the future:
"The Oklahoma City Community Foundation values integrity, stewardship and collaboration. We strive to be enlightened leaders with a long-term perspective of community issues and opportunities, and we encourage and assist donors' philanthropy for the benefit of the community."

Description
Beauty can be defined in may ways. Margaret Annis Boys found beauty in the native trees, flowers and landscapes of Oklahoma. And since 1991, public parks, medians, neighborhoods and schools have benefited from her generosity through the Margaret Annis Boys Trust at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation.
 
A longtime educator in Oklahoma City, Miss Boys worked with her bank trust officer on her estate plans. Based upon her deep appreciation for Oklahoma's native trees and flowers, they determined an estate gift to establish an endowment fund would accomplish her goal of funding beautification projects on public lands in Oklahoma County. Following her death in 1990, we received a bequest from her estate for $1.5 million. Since that time, more than 200 grants have helped to fund beautification projects at dog parks, schools and public gardens.
 
In acknowledgement of her contributions to the community, the arboretum at Will Rogers Park is now known as the Margaret Annis Boys Arboretum.

Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact. We continue to receive requests from neighborhoods and organizations for beautification projects. We have a nearly 100 percent success rate with our plantings thanks to a three-year maintenance plan that grantees must abide by.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success.
The rebirth of Tulsa Park in south central Oklahoma is thanks to the perseverance of the neighborhood and the efforts of Brian Dougherty, program officer for the Margaret Annis Boys Trust. The nearly 10-acre park had become a haven to drug gangs and was littered by graffiti. A determined group of neighbors worked with several organizations on a plan to reclaim the park. Over a four-year period, the group worked with Brian to form a plan. In 2010, they received a $10,000 Margaret Annis Boys Trust grant for the planting of trees and shrubs. Brian was able to put the group in touch with city and county officials who helped with the clean up and further enhancements.
 
Jeanna Daniel, a lifelong resident of the neighborhood, says the rebirth of the park is a dream come true. "It is the heart of the neighborhood once again, just like when I was a little kid."
 
Description Through the Parks & Public Space Initiative, we are supporting the development of existing public parks to meet the health and recreational needs of citizens in Oklahoma County. The Parks & Public Space Initiative is identifying neighborhood and community public parks or public spaces in Oklahoma County for planning, program development and public/private partnerships, which will encourage the use of the parks for recreation, health and wellness activities.

Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments In addition to the programs listed above, the Oklahoma City Community Foundation also administers FinishMyDegree.org, a website for adults who have earned college credits but have left college before earning a degree. FinishMyDegree.org is part of a national initiative, The Talent Dividend Prize, a program created by the nonprofit CEO for Cities. Oklahoma City is one of 51 cities in the United States participating in the program.. At FinishMyDegree.org, adults will find resources about financial aid and links to more than 20 area colleges and universities. When FinishMyDegree.org was launched, the percentage of Oklahoma City area adults who had at least an associate's degree or bachelor's degree was 27.6 percent. It is the goal of the program to increase the national college attainment rate by 1 percent by 2014. Raising the median adult four-year college attainment rate of the top 51 metro areas from 30.7 percent to 31.7 percent would be associated with an increase in income of $143 billion per year for the nation.

Comments on Financials
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
Due to the variability of revenue and expense from year to year, the projected revenue and expenses are based upon a three-year average of audited financial information. Included in the expenses are grants and annual distributions made to charitable organizations and programs.
 
Foundation Staff Comments
The audited financial information includes both the Oklahoma City Community Foundation and the 29 supporting organizations of the Oklahoma City Community Foundation.  The 990s are ONLY for the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, Inc. and do NOT include the supporting organizations' information.  Each supporting organization files its own Form 990. 
Annual 'Total Revenues Amount' shown above includes contributions, interest, dividends, administrative fees and unrealized gains & losses.  'Payments to Affiliates' is actually 'Investment expenses and management fees' as shown in the audited financials.
  
All prior year financial information have been restated to the IRS Form 990s.
 
Contributions may include foundations and corporations when the breakout was not available. 2015 Contributions include funds transferred into foundationfrom an affiliated fund which closed in FY15.
 
The financial information presented is obtained from the following sources: IRS Form 990, independent audit reports, financial statements – board approved when available, and supplemental information from the organization. We do not warrant or guarantee the timeliness, errors or inaccuracies.
